New Titles by Workshop alumni Wilhelm and Dickey

Independent publisher Rescue Press has recently released titles by two Iowa Writers' Workshop alumni: Vinnie Wilhelm’s IN THE ABSENCE OF PREDATORS and Melissa Dickey’s THE LILY WILL.

Shot through with dark humor, desolate landscapes, and seemingly impossible plot turns, Vinnie Wilhelm’s IN THE ABSENCE OF PREDATORS is a striking collection that haunts long after the stories have reached their outlandish conclusions.
